Legionnaire’s Disease may proved fatal as this recent incident shows:

A hotel at the centre of a Legionnaires’ outbreak which led to a woman’s death has reopened.

The Feathers Hotel in Ludlow, Shropshire, was closed in September after Elaine Brown, 69, contracted the disease following a stay in July.

Shropshire Council and Public Health England said that they were satisfied steps had been taken to “identify possible sources of contamination”.
